I'm a big fan of the World Series films, and I own quite a few although not that cool megaset they just came out with.
Unfortunately as a Mets fan I don't get to see my team in too many of these..although the 2000 film is one of my favorites....and my favorite of them all is that 2001 World Series film. No not because the Yankees won but because of the drama of that series, my personal memories of attending Game 5 and the NYC vibe post 9/11.
Which brings us to the 2009 video....another fine effort in the series and a nice stocking stuffer if you don't know what to get a Yankee fan for the holidays.
Sure there's some things that drive me bananas like John Sterling and Mike Francesca (does anyone in the real world have Mike's accent, or is it just Mike and badly written New Yawk characters in movies. And does anyone say Joisey? I digress...) Apparently something traumatic happened to A-Rod last off-season but not too much is explained about that....poor A-Rod.
It was fun for me to watch Pedro Martinez bomb. It has only been a month and I already forgot that the Phillies and their manager, I think his name is Grady Little, started Pedro twice. Ah, Four Inning Pedro I knew you wouldn't let me down.
I really like the extras which contain many of the key moments...just the raw video. No Sterling, no Joe Buck (well for the most part).
These videos are fun to watch this time of year (don't get mad at me Mets fans, get mad at Omar and friends) and then again a few years down the road. I like digging out the really old ones with the fake crack of the bat sound effect.

If you are visiting The Mets Police for the first time, welcome.
This blog aims to be a little different. We're less likely to complain about a pitching change than we are likely to complain about what the pitcher was wearing.
We're about Mets history and tradition. We'd like to see a Seaver statue at Citi Field. We'd like the black uniforms to go away. We'd like the team to always treat the fans with respect.
We're just regular old Mets fans like you who have migrated from the uppers to the Promenade where we were saddened when we found plexiglass. Finally, for all our complaining we just want the franchise to win the World Series (while nicely dressed).
The site is updated several times a day, usually morning, noon, and night (cliche but true) with other items as they come in.
Mets Police in no way claims to be news nor accurate, including anything to which we link. It's just a blog. Read the blog and/or take our advice at your own risk.
We strongly encourage everyone to support the New York Mets and their business partners, just don't wear a black jersey while doing so.

A collection of anecdotes related to Mets tickets, and my suggestion the Mets return 7 game packs and make Promenade Left the place to be. Click the pic.
